Jill McCrystal's Profile
I am a full-time high school science teacher, teaching Chemistry, Astronomy and Marine Biology....and I ADORE my students. Outside of teaching, I have always pursued some sort of creative endeavor, including cooking and learning Spanish, all of which have become lifelong activities. A recent endeavor is jewelry making. I started Jill McCrystal Jewelry in January of 2006, putting my scientific interest in geology (gemstones) and marine biology (pearls) to a creative purpose. I also dabble in metalsmithing and lost wax casting.
Outside of the above activities, I love mountain biking, rock climbing, being in the mountains, trail running, gardening, reading and my husband, step-kids and grandkids!
I tend toward simplicity in my designs. I like to use top quality gems and let them speak for themselves, so I try not to distract from the gems…
